  • High success rate: They have a success rate of 98-99%. [1]
  • Cheaper costs: All on 4 dental implants cost about 70% less in dental tourism destinations as compared to the US, Canada, UK, and Australia.
  • Depending on your dental condition and medical history, sometimes all the implants can be placed in one appointment.

Components of an All on 4 Dental Implant System

All on 4 system is comprised of four implants that support a full-arch fixed bridge.

  • Two implants are vertically placed (axial implants).
  • These are placed in the front or anterior part of the jaw bone.

  • The back/posterior implants placed are tilted at an angle of 45 degrees instead of vertically. [2]
  • The purpose of tilting the implant is to prevent violation of sinuses and nerves [3] and so that the surrounding bone can provide more support, making it a good anchor.

  • A complete set arch of artificial teeth on a denture base is screwed onto or cemented on the underlying implants.

Are You a Suitable Candidate for an All-on-Four Implant Abroad?

Those who can be considered good candidates for an All-on-4 dental implant are

  • Patients who are missing teeth in an entire arch but have adequate bone to support implants.
  • People who have only a few teeth left in the mouth with less supporting bone structure.
  • All on 4 is an acceptable treatment for resorbed ridges. [4] However, All on 6 dental implants, employing two additional implants, give more support to the jaw. Hence, they are successful in severely resorbed ridges.
  • The implants at the back are fixed at a tilted angle. This maximizes the utilization of the available bone.
  • Patients with any debilitating medical conditions, for example, uncontrolled hypertension or diabetes, heart disease, diseases related to blood, cancers, ongoing radiation therapy, have to be properly evaluated.
  • In some instances, after a proper assessment of the condition, signed consent of their medical practitioner may be required.

    Although All on 4 is a patented protocol by Nobel Biocare, other international brands have similar systems.

    Steps Involved: An Overview of the All on 4 Procedure

    Evaluation & Implant Placement

    The stay during the first visit can last anywhere between 5 days to 12 days, depending upon the clinic, protocol, and the patient’s condition.

    Stepwise procedure for All on Four Dental Implants during the first visit abroad

    Evaluation (First Appointment)

    • Clinical examination of mouth and teeth is performed.
    •  X-rays and CT Scans are done.
    • Scaling, fillings, root canal treatment, extraction, etc., of infected teeth in the opposite jaw is done to prevent infection by any pre-existing dental problem.
    • Different treatment plans are formulated.
    • A plan is finalized with the clients’ consent.

    Implant Placement (Next appointment)

    • After the formulation of a treatment plan, the implants are placed in the next appointment.
    • Anesthesia: It can be local anesthesia or conscious sedation, depending on the patient’s anxiety level. All of these are safe in-office procedures. For overly anxious patients, general anesthesia can also be given.
    • Placement: Implants are surgically placed in the bone. A full arch of hybrid acrylic temporary denture is placed on the implants.

    Virtual Assessment of the Case

    Overseas patients can also email their x-rays and photographs before the visit. This will

    — help you obtain a tentative treatment plan,

    — allow the dentist to better understand your case,

    — and provide you with all available treatment options and their estimated cost.*

    *Total time taken and the final treatment plan may differ depending on physical and radiological examinations at the clinic.

    Healing Period (back home)

    • During the next 3-6 months, healing of the gums and bone takes place by osseointegration.
    • Osseointegration takes a minimum of around 2 months. By this time, the implant integrates with the jawbone. [5]

    Permanent Denture Placement

    • After the osseointegration is complete, clients may come back for a porcelain denture. The porcelain denture has better aesthetics and strength.
    • A stay of 4-5 days is needed during this visit to test the fitting of the denture before it is completely finished.
